The offense of the Los Angeles Rams was absolutely anemic on Monday night against the San Francisco 49ers.
They couldn’t manage a single point in a 28-0 loss to the 49ers.
Case Keenum passed for just 130 yards with two interceptions. Todd Gurley was held to just 47 yards on 17 carries. The Rams converted just three times on third down in 15 opportunities. They had just four of 14 drives finish in 49ers’ territory. They punted 10 times, had two drives end via interception, another on downs and then a final play to end the game.
It was about as ineffective as an offense can be.
Nevertheless, head coach Jeff Fisher says the showing does nothing in regards to the team’s quarterback situation.
“This doesn’t change anything as far as quarterbacks are concerned,” Fisher said in his post-game remarks, via Lakisha Jackson of NFL.com.
And why would it? It’s not like the team selected a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft or anything.
Oh yeah, they did do that. Jared Goff – the top overall pick in question – was inactive for Los Angeles in its debut regular season performance. Sean Mannion served as the backup to Keenum in the contest.
Fisher indicated last week that Goff and Mannion would swap duties in the team’s Week 2 home opener against Seattle, meaning Goff would be the backup with Mannion inactive. If Keenum struggles again as badly as he did Monday night, it may be incredibly difficult to keep Goff on the sidelines.
